South Africa - 5

Sunday, August 30, 2009

I am going to post my "Out of Africa Journal" very soon, but I could hardly wait to stop and post these comparison pictures!
The picture above is one I found on a South Africa tourism site. However...the picture on the right is me "on-site" at Cape Point, South Africa, just last Saturday. Woo-Hoo! I made it to Cape Point and it did not disappoint.
It was gloriously delightful...only our Creator God could make such beauty!
So many things much more monumental and wonderful happened that are of way more eternal value, but I was so blessed to see this beautiful place first hand.
Love to all, can't wait to post my journal soon.

South Africa - 4

Saturday, August 15, 2009

We are leaving Sunday night and will be in South Africa on Monday afternoon, August 17...which just happens to be our grandson's first birthday. Happy Birthday Ezekiel - I love you. I am so glad I was able to celebrate with you at your party today! Thank you ALL for your prayers and sweet comments. You must read the wonderful poem by Lora - see it in the post comments on South Africa - 3. What a gifted writer! Thank you Lora, you blessed my soul. One of the things I want to see is the "Cape of Good Hope." I found this picture on a travel site. It is the southern tip of the continent of Africa, Capetown, South Africa, and we will be ministering in Capetown as part of our journey. Isn't it beautiful? The place where the Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean meet. I know the One who made those seas, and my Hope is in Him! Dear Father, guard and keep us safe, use us for Your Glory Alone, watch over our family, protect our home, and hold Your Mighty Hand under that big 777 plane...and then again as we return. Psalm 95:5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. I can't wait to share this journey with all of you...I am so blessed and my hope is to be a blessing.
